We're very excited in the Ministry of Craft office to have a new jewellery course and a fantasticly talented new tutor on board - Melissa Keith- Jopp. Having given up teaching art full time to pursue her passion for all things creative, Melissa is now working on developing her resin jewellery and contemporary glass engraving business - Jopp Design, as well as tutoring adults and children in a wide range of creative pursuits.
Focusing a lot of her creative work around the ethos of upcycling, Melissa has devised our newest course - Mix & mould: Resin jewellery in March. She'll be teaching our customers how to preserve some of their favorite miniature treasures in resin and then turn them into a pieces of gorgeous and very wearable jewellery. We're loving her work and can't wait to see the 'makes' from the course.
